    MB: I have
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813131735

    Ram: Need help deciding why is 8-16 gig's of mem better then 24-32 gigs for a gaming machine.

    Video Card: 2x GTX 480
    This is up in the air as I'm waiting for any info on the GTX680 and to see when they will come out. IF not I may just throw 2 480's in this compy till next xmas and then upgrade then... undecided.

    Hi , your links to egg don't work for many of them, I see you choose 1,65 volts ram, what kind of motherboard you use.. also the link to Daz, show only a general page not an item.

    Waht case do you have, I ask because I'm sure we can find better than this Zalman system, also I will replace the PSU with a AX 1200, way better

    The case is something I'm trying to figure out.
    I have access to a table top laser and I will be engraving a theme in to the sides and or front so I'd like a big lexan window or a solid door to work on.
    Themes I've been thinking of ,
    Skyrim: laser cut the side either to a dragon or logo and then logos of the equipment thats in the box. A pressed logo into a leather strap worked somewhere into the box.

    BF3: Logo cut into side with actual holes shot into box * I have friends that own gun ranges*

    OR a Res Evil. I have worked on the RE2, RE4 and RE5 and SOON RE6... but dont say anything I have a number of film swag I could build into this box easily.

    OR a halflife box...

    I could go on forever...

    What I like: Easy to work with
    http://www.xoxide.com/nzxt-m59case.html

    http://www.xoxide.com/antec-df35darkfleet-case.html

    http://www.xoxide.com/nzxt-lexascase.html

    Large amount of space for modding.
    http://www.xoxide.com/coolermaster-haf932case.html

    Options with more then some modding:
    This one is very nice on the inside but the side cover is almost useless to me..
    http://www.xoxide.com/sentey-gs-6500...towercase.html

    This one is nice but the side window would have to be built.
    http://www.xoxide.com/aerocool-strik...towercase.html

    Nice but no side window
    http://www.xoxide.com/aerocool-vs3ad...ower-case.html

    I like this one but it's seems tight and I will be running two 480s.
    http://www.xoxide.com/nzxt-vulcan-matxcase.html

    I only post this one to ask if these or similar dials are available somewhere, I'd like to see info on heat and such.
    http://www.xoxide.com/apevia-xcruiser2-black-case.html

    This one kinda grow on me I'd laser cut the fan shroud from the side and add lexan
    http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-ch...towercase.html

    This one is greeting pricy but I like it
    http://www.xoxide.com/cooler-master-haf-x.html

    Last but not least
    http://www.xoxide.com/zalman-zmachine-gt1000-black.html
    but for 399 for a box I'd just get there 599 one with liquid cooling in it already.

    Sorry for the LONG ass post, please let me know what you think or other options.

    So , your best option will be to order a rad , a pump , a reservoir , tube and fittings from our friend Daz.

    wow lol looks like someone was taken by gypsies as a baby
    Ok I've emailed him about the MB water block.


    You had asked about the high voltage ram.
    Now I'm not sure if I need 2133. The MB says it take 1600 and 2133 OC. Does that mean that I can get 1600 and OC it to 2133 or what?
    Whats the difference both the same price
